Being an avid pool player I thought I would make a cue and ball rack for my pool room. I have a store bought rack that holds my standard cues only.

This is a copy of an old rack that I had seen years ago in an old pool hall.

I used white oak and dowel construction. Six coats of Formby’s Tung Oil finishes it off.

Beautiful work Dale. I love white oak. It is surprisingly nice to work with and really planes well. Those custom cues are really nice too. Did you make them yourself? I used to love pool and played quite a lot, but I got a something in my eye while in the Navy which the specialists couldn’t do anything about, and it distorts my vision enough to ruin my pool game. It sounds like you are still enjoying it though.

Great looking project. I got one week till Christmas and haven’t figured out a gift for my son. This just might be the ticket, simple and very useful.

Got a Q. What is the height and width of this?
Merry Christmas

It’s excellent idea. beautiful white oak on the wall and use small area to keep the pool cues.
It’ll good for my balabushka cues

My wife plays a lot of pool and is in need of a nice rake to go upstairs with our pool table. I’ve been deliberating for some time over what to make for her and I like the looks of this.

How did you shape the channel for the balls? Is it a half round profile or a flat bottom?
